I think we were speaking of a non-free font. Unless you mean opening a
tl-non-free section?

Same with me. Either someone comes with a ready to copy-paste solution, or I
won't touch it.

Sure. Anyway, I don't want o touch anything in the texdoctk code now, and
probably not in the future either.  I just wanted to point out that this is
not a very serious problem, and also that IMO there's a lot of (now) useless
things in texdoctk's code that bloat it.


PS: I changed the "Search" button text to "search texdoctk's database" and
added a line "Try `texdoc $string' in a command line." to the "not found"
dialog. Hope that helps. (r10308, available in tomorrow's installer)
